‘Public support bolsters security forces morale’

‘Public support bolsters security forces morale’

LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Security situation has been considerably improved in the backdrop of growing public support for security forces while militants were vying to find place for shelter, commander of the 215th Maiwand Military Corps in southern Helmand province said on Thursday.

Speaking at a graduation ceremony of soldiers, Brig. Gen. Dadan Lawang, said militants had tried to capture some areas in the ongoing year but they faced defeat in every attempt and were unable to defeat forces.

“In the absence of foreign troops, insurgents hoped they will overrun majority of areas,” said Lawang.

He stressed the newly graduates should play their role in bringing peace and utilize their skills and professional abilities to safeguard the motherland.

Col. Shah Wali Zazai, director of Maiwand Training Centre, said soldiers got extensive two months training and would be awarded commendation certificates.

He said the graduates would be deployed to different Afghan National Army (ANA) unites for discharging their duties.

Zahidullah, a resident of eastern Nangarhar province, said: “I received nine months training here. Our teachers trained us about contemporary war tactics.”
